A CLASSIC, OLD-TIME and rich Cornwall combination specimen of glassy, multi-hued blue clinoclase microcrystals and green olivenite microcrystals covering two sides of the quartz-rich matrix. This excellent piece hails from the clinoclase Type Locality - Wheal Gorland and was certainly mined in the 1800s.
